Contemplating 2020’s hatred of Christianity, it is smart that 2021 begins with a very illiterate perspective of Christianity. HBO’s Spanish drama 30 Cash brings again the traditional delusion of the Gospel of Judas to poison our screens as soon as once more. Very like The Da Vinci Code, this story by no means appears to die.
The January 11 episode “The Mirror” continues the story of small-town mayor Paco (Miguel Ángel Silvestre) partnering with native veterinarian Elena (Megan Montaner) to look into the unusual occurrences occurring after the arrival of Father Manuel Vergara (Eduard Fernández).
When Paco and Elena come throughout what seems to be a possessed mirror, they discover a connection to the Gospel of Judas. This results in Paco asking Father Vergara concerning the topic, and the priest introduces this group known as the Cainites who observe the gnostic Gospel of Judas which states that Jesus and Judas deliberate his betrayal.
Principally, the Cainites imagine in doing evil as a result of “there is no such thing as a good with out evil” and every thing is a part of God’s plan, as if the Gospel wasn’t blasphemous sufficient for viewers. Father Vergara is fast to comment that that is solely what the Cainites imagine, not essentially true. Nonetheless, the present appears to go in opposition to him at each flip. Your entire sequence is constructed round evil demons and members of an historic group looking down all thirty items of silver as soon as given to Judas as a result of they allegedly have supernatural powers.
This episode additionally reveals many of the members of the present Cainites “belong to the Church,” which squashes the concept that this can be a fringe conspiracy. 30 Cash appears to be following the Gospel of Judas greater than something from the precise Bible.
Even past that, the present itself isn’t precisely a nice watch. There’s dismemberment, foul language, and numerous blood. The smoking, tattooed, former felon Father Vergara additionally comes off as a horrible illustration of the spiritual sect, other than those which are actually evil, after all. Even with out the Cainites, the present appeared keen to point out the Vatican as a ruthless cult-like group. It virtually makes the blasphemy appear tame by comparability.
